Got up at 2.45 A.M. bath.  Wrote diary. Winded up.  Ready to start my journey to Kunda chatti, Rudraprayag, Rishikesh, Haridwar, Delhi, Nagpur and Amravati.

After Agastimuni driver of my bus drove fast to catch further gate.  When bus was on climb and slow near Rudraprayag the steering rod broke.  All of us escaped certain death in the valley below.  I cancelled going to Kaithi to meet Pandey brothers.  On the morning of 15th reached Delhi and dropped a letter to Radhakantji. On 16th June I reached home at 6.30 P.M. without a penny in pocket.  Rushed to hospital where my maternal grandfather was admitted in serious condition.

I had no money.  I took thirty rupees from mother and decided
to go to Calcutta on total forty-five rupees and manage rest there.  Mother herself prepared my Tiffin.  I left.  Luckily as requested my friend Pandurang Pawar came with money.  I told him to pay thirty rupees to mother.  He saw me off.
